Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) is an on-going, ever-changing “safety and soundness” issue, and compliance continues to be a top priority with the regulators. The financial industry is required to take an increased leading role in the prevention of money laundering and potential terrorist funding. One major requirement is to designate a BSA/AML Compliance Officer and to ensure that both the BSA/AML Compliance Officer and the BSA Team are well trained and qualified to carry out the critical duties. This Bootcamp provides the framework for understanding the BSA team’s roles and responsibilities for BSA/AML and OFAC compliance.

This two-day comprehensive session provides the tools, techniques, and “real world” practice and examples for learning the critical components of a BSA/AML program. We will review the basic BSA regulatory framework and provide you with an understanding of the BSA, OFAC, Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing as well as the core recordkeeping requirements. Attendees will utilize the FFIEC BSA/AML Examination Manual – including recent updates!
